I've been on the elliptical every day for the past two weeks and been trying to keep under 1200 calories and eating healthier. I am down to 135lbs, which is good but not where I want to be. Another 5lbs for my clothes to fit better, another 10lbs for me to be happy about my body
Including to day we got six week left people before bonnaroo week. I plan on lifting five days for five weeks till June and then do cardio the first week of June and the Monday of bonnaroo week. I am going to try and stay focused on my diet too. Still plenty of time people but don't wait forever bonnaroo is almost here. Heck I bet I lose 5 pounds during bonnaroo. At least.
Don't worry about your weight so much people! My weight fluctuated so much this week. Last Tuesday I was at 173.4, Fri after mowing grass 177, Saturday night 185 (after big meal, if you've never had a botana platter you are missing out). Today after workout 176.2. In one week thats up 11.6 and back down 8.3, almost a twenty pound swing altogether. Just keep working and keep in mind how your clothes fit. That is (in my opinion) a better indicator cuz muscle weighs more than fat so if you lose fat and gain muscle you could still be thinner and weigh more.

I'm very happy to say that, at 31, I am now in the best shape of my life. A few years ago I was a good bit overweight (top was 182, which is not great for 5'6"). When I finally committed to hitting the gym regularly, it all clicked. I'm motivated to generally eat healthier and care for myself. Energy level is definitely up, too. I never worked super hard or was super strict, but over about 3 1/2 years I've shed almost 40 pounds and am lifting a good bit more than when I started. And running—I just recently hit a personal goal of running under a 6 minute mile, much better than when I ran cross country in high school.
Plus, the wife is noticing the difference physically, which is always a motivator.
Speaking of running, anyone else run or otherwise work out in Vibrams (aka toe shoes)? I can't imagine going back to regular running shoes.
